Well, just two, actually, and two minor ones at that.  We took our entertainment "area" from this 

to this by pulling out the table and switching from that great big stereo system to our iPod speakers.  Huge difference in the small den.  I actually tried to get that table out a couple of months ago without removing the speakers and couldn't figure out how to make it work.  Yay for Mr. Smartie Pants!

Murray thinks so, too. 

We now have more seating at the dining table (without the metal folding chairs) because we added 

this bench.  My brother and I sat on benches at the table when we were children, and my father did a small repair on this one so we could use it here on Lankford.  I plan on painting it white once we have more than one day in a row without rain.  It also helps that Little Man is now sitting at the table without a high chair or booster seat.  He is under the impression that he is hot stuff.  I tend to agree.

So, as you can see, nothing major, but sometimes small changes can make a huge difference in personalizing your space.


  1. I like the bench! We sat on benches at my house, too. In fact...the youngest two still do. I like it the natural wood color, I wouldn't even paint it white. One more thing off your list, right? ^_^

  2. I love the new 'looks', especially the one in the dining room. And I agree with you that Mr. Little Man is indeed 'hot stuff' !!! Just don't let him jump off the bench a la your brother.
